Trivia

Just like the aliens are from Mogadore, which is their planet, but also a play on the small Ohio town of the same name, the planet which John and Number Six are from, Lorien (pronounced LORE-ee-en), is a play on the small Ohio town of Lorain (pronounced lo-RAIN), which is about one hour northwest of Akron.

Goofs

When Henri gives John his phone, he informs him that he'll be calling every hour John is on his own to make sure he's okay, and if John doesn't pick up, Henri will know something is wrong (implying he'll assume the Mogs have attacked John and will come looking for him). During dinner at Sarah's, John reluctantly surrenders his phone after noticing three missed calls from Henri. Despite the fact that John had not answered his phone for three hours, Henri does nothing about it, and does not even mention it at all afterward. See more »

Disappointing
25 February 2011 | by animus_10See all my reviews

If you've read the book, be prepared to be thoroughly disappointed. If you haven't read the book, still be prepared to be disappointed.

Unsurprisingly, the film did not at all follow the chronological order of the book and had removed major scenes which if included would have not only helped to develop the film as a whole but made it a lot more interesting, and not to mention plot holes would not have risen.

The acting at best was mediocre, with the cute dog outshining the main cast. The pace of the film was surprisingly very slow, for an action packed film and ironically lacked enough action.

The development of characters was next to nothing. From the beginning it jumped straight to the end with nothing in the middle. There was no opportunity for the audience to empathise and the relationship between the characters was hardly explored.

The only positive to the film was the effects, which were decent and made the film just bearable to watch.

A very poor and disappointing film.
